Why Going (Somewhat) Paperless?
Earth Day was just a few days ago, so being good to the environment is still on everyone’s mind at our Miami Beach accounting practice. While some planted trees and others participated in beach cleanups, we decided to make an effort in being a little more paperless around the office.
Going paperless can help you save space and money
Imagine no filing cabinet or archive boxes filled with paperwork, or perhaps less of them. Instead of having clutter around the office, imagine a streamlined space, clear and wide open for everything else, from plants to coffee machines to greater focus and concentration. When you’re not using as much paper, you’re not printing (or faxing) either, so you’re saving on ink cartridges, paper itself of course, as well as printers.
Going paperless means keeping track with restricted access
With paper records, safety and security protocols is serious business, because all you need is a key to gain access. Most importantly, there’s less accountability. But when you go paperless, and use digital files to do business, you can easily track who’s reviewed them. Everyone has a username and password, allowing management to verify who’s reviewed files and when. Plus, you can also restrict access to certain members of your team.
Improved customer service by going paperless
This Miami Beach accounting practice knows that when you can retrieve and organize files, you can also serve them faster to clients. No more looking around through huge piles of paperwork, a simple digital search with the right keyword gives you all the information you need fast. Think more efficiency, productivity and better customer service.
